After a recent acquisition, the Kansas City area’s largest information technology training company is set to become one of the biggest tech educators in the Midwest.
Centriq Training announced Tuesday it purchased St. Louis-based Premier Knowledge Solutions in April for an undisclosed amount. The combined firms will offer virtual courses and in-person training in the St. Louis and Kansas City metro areas.
“Information technology professionals located in St. Louis, as well as throughout the region, will now have access to training capabilities not previously available,” Centriq president Kevin Grawe said in a release. “Our clients will be able to choose from more than 400 different training courses, many of which are not available in St. Louis today.”
Founded in 1989, Centriq said the deal serves complementary client bases, as Premier Knowledge focuses on government and military clients, while Centriq focuses primarily on corporate clients. Both companies offer consumer training programs that help individuals launch a coding or IT career.
From Java and .Net to Linux and a variety of networking IT, Centriq trains more than 3,000 corporate IT professionals from 500 companies each year, the company said. The Leawood-based firm provides training for such corporate giants as Microsoft, Cisco, CompTIA and others.
